We moved house this year and when looking for Christmas things in the attic, found a box that had been missing for several years. And it was this box that held the treasures of my Christmas pasts. Thought I'd post a few pics on the run-up to Christmas.
Here's my fave. Snoopy. He was a big gift tag that my mom used year after year on whatever gift she gave me at the time. That is my mom's handwriting on the tag. I think he showed up about the time I was a young teen, so he didn't get as mangled as might could have happened. But as you can see, Snoopy has definitely been through the mill. He's a bit scruffy. The white ball on his Santa hat is missing. Once he came to live at my house, I used to set him in the Christmas tree as an ornament. I haven't seen him in ages, but now he is sitting next to my computer and keeping me company all season. And I love him.
